    I have got my provisional date yesterday for 7th June at Raleigh.

    Thanks and see you in there!!

    Your entry date will always be a provisional date until the day you arrive at HMS Raleigh and sign your contract. You will be given a copy of your contract at your entry brief (about 6-8 weeks before you are due to join) if you haven't already got one. However, you do not sign it until the monday of the first week.

    The first entry of this thread deserves to be a Forum on its own, so that Newbies can go straight to it or be refered to it straight away. Could save a lot of bone questions, and a lot of ridicule.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - Advanced Search

    If you have problems trying to find the answers to your query, a lot of individuals seem to be unaware there is an Advanced Search Feature.

    If I'm completely honest, I was unaware of this myself until just recently (cheers Witsend!).

    From a medical point of view, please post in the Health & Fitness section. Most questions have already been answered, but if you think yours is different to the rest (which seems a fairly common misconception) then I will do my best to guide. Also happy to continue to receive PMs for matters you don't want the world to know about.

    To try & keep things in a semblance of order, future medical queries posted in Newbies will be moved to Health & Fitness so Angrydoc gets vision of them without having to trawl through queries regarding which handbag goes with what lipstick when joining the New Entry Training Establishments (Raleigh, Lympstone, Nelson & BRNC).

    This probably seems a rediculous question but what kind of tracks suit are we supposed to bring to Raleigh ? Is it a jogger track suit or more of a shell suit ? When will it be used as all the fitness etc seems to be done in matching equipment.

    Sorry if this has been done before I just dont want to turn up with the wrong stuff. Cheers.

    Just a bog standard shell suit with fluorescent colours will suffice. Nothing dowdy or understated.
